In doing a piston,rings, rod rebuild on my 1054's engine I have found a major problem.... On removing the head and pan and bumping the piston out I see the piston is a .020 over and the cylinder and piston are in good condition, next I make a quick check of the crank and take a quick mearurement and get 1.478 - assuming its also .020 under, and it too looks OK. I order up one of the rebuild kits off ebay for .020 piston and .020 rod, so yesterday I proceded to do the further tear down, get the crank out on the bench and do a real measurement and yeah, it is 1.477 in ONE place and then it varies up to 1.486! Yeow! slightly egg shaped and it dont look so good either with it out in good light -- and Ive got the kit on the way.... It was probably turned to .010 and wore down to the .020 reading in that one spot.
So I need another crankshaft. Ideally I could find one that is already turned .020 (except not egg shaped) and be able to use the rod in the kit, or find one that had a matching rod.... There are several cranks on ebay but are generally model specific stating only for a K241, and dont offer a rod either. Anybody here have something I can use and get out of this bind I created for myself?
